Eweka is our top choice for those looking for a European Usenet service provider. This Dutch Usenet provider currently offers a full 3,913 days of retention across all text and binary newsgroups, which is vastly more than other tier-1 Usenet providers within the region. Eweka also owns and operates its own network with multiple server locations throughout Europe that delivers good speeds and article completion both inside and outside of Europe. For these reasons, along with some of the features we highlight below, Eweka received our top pick among the Best European Dutch Usenet Providers of 2018.Unlike US-based Usenet services, Eweka offers 2 types of plans. First, they offer a pre-paid plan, which is a popular payment model in The Netherlands. This means that you purchase days of access for your account in advance. After you run out of days or are about to run out of days, you just top off your account to keep your Usenet access active. You can add as many or as few of days that suits you best.
Eweka also offers subscription plans. We recommend this option for 2 reasons. First, it will save you 27% for the lifetime of your subscription. Secondly, it includes a 7 day free trial with unlimited downloads. We should note that very rarely will you find a service provider that offers a free trial with both unlimited GB and high-speeds (300 Mbps), so if you are looking around for a good free trial, this is the one to go with. Your free trial will also include a free newsreader with Usenet search and article preview capabilities.
